I have the Dakine Viper gloves (see Dakine Website for picture). They have excellent grip for kiting. I like them. The only problem is that they're not really warm. My friend uses them with liner gloves inside and he said it makes a big difference. So I think I'll go buy some thin gloves that will hopefully make them usable when it's really cold out.

I'm getting the new snowkiting video (snowkite addict2) any day now. Hope it's good.

Slingshot makes a glove specifically for snowkiting called the Kicker. It has precurved grip and is reinforced in high wear areas.

Hey Arin

Any pictures of those gloves? Are they well insulated or just a shell like my Dakine?

hey guys..
I have been using SealSkinz Gloves this year.. they're absolutely amazing. When the temperature is above -7, they are thin and waterproof.. and very grippy .. I can leave my gloves on while setting up.
I got my pair from bass proshops for 42 cdn

here's the only online store, I could find it on... just for the picture sake

I found a nice pair of riding gloves @ West 49th here in Windsor. They are called Grenade gloves. They are nice and thin, but surprisingly warm. they are constructed on a thick neoprene with a velcro cinch wrist. I got them for $24.99. I have worn them twice riding so far and they are the shit. Nice and warm. I am able to undo my lines with them on. Check them out @ www.grenadegloves.com
See ya all @ Cass.
